  • It was a beautiful day for a walk through this beautiful place. We saw Kangaroos resting amongst the trees and a koala fast asleep which was a real bonus to see these in the wild. The shrubs, roses an...  more »
  • This amazing botanic garden presents a spectacular view at every turn with rhododendrons and azaleas to die for! As it is nestled on a steep slope it is probably a good idea to start at the top and wa...  more »
  • This is an event that had so much potential however food wise it was disappointing as the food trucks did not cater for all. The Taco truck had run out of food by 1pm. Hardly any food to choose for ki...  more »

  • cold during winter and don't expect flowers out of season. catch them in spring or fall and you could catch the leaves changing colors and flowers blooming. if you were from Mt Lofty, you can reuse the parking ticket so that is a bonus. also catch the free guide that will bring you on a walking tour around the garden. awesome!
  • One of my favourite places in Adelaide, tranquil and serene all year round. things for kids and families, for the hiker, and for people who just want to relax or meditate. Abundance of wildlife, and beautiful views. Ample car parks in the lower and upper car park. Also a few road signs to make it easier to get there! Every time i go i stumble across new trails. one of my favourite things to do is try to find the castle. There are maps available at both entries for those who take comfort in knowing they won't get lost. I you do get lost (which i have plenty of times) there are plenty of signs around to point you in the right direction. No cafes, which is better for the wildlife. Plenty of places for picnics!
  • Beautiful, massive, sloping garden filled with exotic plants, many under a canopy of tall eucalyptus trees. Large lake near the bottom of the garden used as a water supply for the gaarden during summer, but doubles as a very picturesque centrepiece all year round. Easy to moderate sloping paths, some wheelchair accessible. Lovely picnic spots. Free parking on Sundays (as at July 2017).
  • Incredible place with beautifully maintained gardens. Various long paths to walk with benches to sit and admire the surrounds, and a picnic area. Easily one of my favourite places to visit in the state.
  • It's a beautiful place to visit and is a greatly sized Garden beautiful Garden and looks very well maintained. Nothing wrong with anything although some more facilities would be better park benches etc. for family's to picnic etc etc. :)
